We have been traveling through Zurich for 13 years and used to always stay at the Best Western in Glattbrugg; then due to lack of availability, we stayed at the Novotel… now, this year at the Marriott Courtyard and this is by far our new favorite. The room was large, with a king size bed (a rarity in Switzerland), with comfy linens… a great shower and quiet. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. The location is nearer to the city than the former hotels and we took a taxi to the hotel from the airport (approx. $35)… FYI – we have NEVER succeeded in taking a shuttle from the airport and at least this hotel doesn’t pretend to have one. We were tired from long travel and didn’t want to spend time trying to find other options (e.g. Tram). However, we did take the tram TO the airport the next day (approx. $12 for both of us)… and RAVED about it. It was a VERY short and VERY direct walk from the hotel… trams are frequent and the Airport is 1 stop away (as is the city center, where we went for dinner). We highly recommend the Tram (I am assuming the difference between the Tram and the Train is that the Tram runs “outside” to Zurich city whereas the train runs underground.
As for previous comments about the price of food… they are entirely correct! The food prices are exorbitant! When we checked in, I asked how much breakfast was… approx. $25/per person for a buffet. Incredible. What we did, instead, was take the tram to the airport train station (we were catching a train to Zermatt), and visited a wonderful bakery (there are many) where I got a Quiche Lorraine and my husband got a croissant… we later paired this with a couple café lattes… all for less that $20!
Aside from eating in the hotel, we strongly recommend the Marriott Courtyard.
